Grades 7-12

Longtime friends Ariel and Grayson are working at a horrible theme park for the summer to save up for college following their high school graduation. Their plan is to be roommates and take their first steps into adulthood together. But tensions created by their increasingly different ideas of growing into manhood - and a complicated incident involving fellow employee Lucy - might be enough to threaten the stability of their friendship. Tackling timely themes of contemporary masculinity, bro culture, and consent, No Big Deal is a complex, funny, and humane new play for high school audiences that's sure to provoke urgent discussion.
